The house has a beautiful view of the ocean which can be enjoyed on the back deck or from the third-floor observation patio. The beach itself is beautiful. The house has plenty of amenities for cooking.

Hi Dewey. Thank you for the great review on Madras House. I believe this house has some of the best views in the whole island! Especially with the large windows in every room, you’re guaranteed a great view. We hope you’ll visit Madras House again very soon!

The online pictures do not give the size of this beach home justice. It is huge, nice large bedrooms and bathrooms, with plenty of parking (a premium in Wrightsville Beach). Beautiful stretch of beach in the back yard with a great back deck and covered area.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Madras House! This house has such beautiful views on all of the levels, and in every room. Especially on the rooftop balcony, with the added bonus of a pool table and Foosball games. We hope you will return to Madras House very soon.

Mixed bag on this rental property... many positives and opportunities
Pro:
Perfect location - couldn’t ask for a more beautiful oceanfront beach lot
Size and layout - very nice layout and flow
Linens - fantastic and organized
Beds - slept great
Outside decks - great views from many spots and lots of chairs and loungers
Opportunities:
Dated kitchen - slow coffee pot, no toaster, fridge handle broken and makes ice but you have to scoop it out as door dispenser is broken
Saw a few roaches around kitchen area - they committed to get the place treated
Water came out black in the tub near single bed bedroom
Driveway is tight to turnaround but convenient at the same time.

In summary, overall with some simple upgrades this could be a five star rental

Thank you so much for your review and feedback from your stay at Madras House, Hilton! We heavily rely on guest feedback to not only improve our services but also to encourage our owner's to make improvements to their homes. I made note of your suggestions and will pass them along to the property managers. We are excited to hear you enjoyed the stunning location and view and found the beds comfortable! The owners have done considerable and costly upgrades in the last two years including all new windows installed for the home this last off season, carpet cleaning, installation of Smart TV's, foosball table, and more! I believe the owners are considering carpet replacement for next season and possibly other updates that we will certainly update our guests on once we know more! We hope your family had a wonderful stay in paradise and will consider renting Madras House again on your next visit. Take care!

Great family holiday!

Home layout, location, and property manager communication was terrific! 4 full bathrooms to go with the 4 bedrooms was perfect for our extended family holiday. Living room was fun for watching the big game together. Fun third floor for older kids. Big porch & easy beach access perfect for grandchildren. Kitchen was large enough for many cooks. Could use new carpet & bigger sheet pans, but great overall. Our group loved this place - all gave two thumbs up. We would all go again! Highly recommend.

Glad to hear Madras House served as the perfect rental for your family, Paul! The home is very spacious and the owners are continuing to make upgrades throughout to make it even greater. The top floor has a pool table and a foos ball table with gorgeous views of the beach so it's definitely a great spot. The owners are looking into replacing the carpeting likely in the next off season, but they have been carpet cleaned recently! We hope you will choose to stay here again next time, you are always welcome.

PROS:Great location. Layout of rooms is perfect.
Wonderful deck overlooking ocean with easy access to beach.
CONS: Almost every room is lacking any type of window shade. Furniture and carpets are worn or stained. Hot water takes about 3 minutes to get.

Robert, thank you so much for your review and feedback! We are thrilled to hear the location of Madras House was a win, with every room having either ocean front or sound views! The unit has had considerable upgrades this year, most recently the owners replacing all the windows in the unit. We are working with the owner to add some additional shades and the carpets are already on the list for replacement in the future. I will make note of your comments about the furniture as well and pass them along to the homeowners. We hope you will consider Madras House for your next trip to Wrightsville - there is so many wonderful amenities that make this unit a great pick!

Great experience but had requested the elevator for one of my guests that had hip surgery recently and it was not made available. Property had a gorgeous view of the beach and ocean. House could use some TLC as far as paint and a new coffee maker, the one in the house is slow as molasses. Need caulk for pool table.

Thank you for your feedback from your stay at Madras House, James! The panoramic views of the marsh and the ocean from this property are certainly something to return for! We are sorry to hear the elevator was not turned on for your visit as it is available for those who have a need for it. I wish you called our maintenance line once you noticed it was off so we could swing by, all it takes is a quick visit to turn on the breaker and our technicians are on call 24/7. The owners have planned for some exciting upgrades and have already been making changes this year including new windows for the entire home, new SmartTV's, foosball table, and more. We hope you will return to Madras House the next time you are in town. Keep in touch!

Tucker, it's so great to hear that your family enjoyed your stay at the Madras House and it lived up to your expectations. The owner has made some upgrades this year and the new addition of the foosball table has been exciting - and more upgrades on the way this offseason. It's so relaxing to spend time out on either deck relaxing in the outdoor furniture watching the waves. Come on back anytime you are in the area, we would love to have you back!

We had a wonderful week with 13 family members from July 10-17. Two of our adults were handicapped.
One thing we would like to see added is the downstairs bathroom needs a higher toilet and handles for handicapped. Also the bathroom beside the room with the hospital bed and king bed needs a higher toilet and handles. The space is too small to help someone on and off the toilet.
The elevator was wonderful!!!! It worked perfectly!
We did have some issues with huge roaches showing up from time to time - kitchen, upstairs hallway, etc. Needs roach treatment or something.
Overall we had a wonderful week and the maintenance guys came out pretty quickly to fix the door to the deck - it was hard to push and got stuck a couple of times.

Thank you for your review and feedback for the Madras House, Nancy! We are so happy to hear your family had a wonderful week and enjoyed your time there! The home has a few handicap features including a ramp from the garage leading into the house, an elevator, ramp leading out to the back porch, and the middle level master has a handicap bathroom with fully accessible roll in shower. I will make note of your suggestions and see what else we can do! Sorry to hear you had a run in with the "locals"... water bugs are an unfortunate result of the climate of Southeastern North Carolina and a house so close to the dunes and are very common in the area so not unit-specific. The home is on a regular pest control spray schedule which prevents them as much as possible. Hopefully it wasn't too unsightly and didn't impact your overall enjoyment of the unit! The home is quite spacious with many decks so you can catch the beautiful ocean and marsh views throughout! We hope you will come back next time your family visits Wrightsville! Keep in touch!

Extended Family of thirteen spent a wonderful week in the home. The house floorplan allows for privacy and quiet although we had two toddlers running around. The back porch is fenced so that the younger children could play on their own with little supervision required. The house is showing wear and age but everything worked and suited us with our six grandchildren.

Chuck, this is great to hear that your family enjoyed Madras House! The owner has been busy in the off season starting to upgrade things such as adding a ping pong table, carpet cleaning, adding new Smart TV's and more! There are definitely still some larger scale projects on the way like full carpet replacement and plantation shutter repair but good things take time sometimes! Glad the kiddos enjoyed the backyard and everyone found the home nice and spacious. We would love to host you all again next time you visit the area!

Madras House is ideally located and the house is spacious and comfortable. Our family of 4 spent a lovely week at the house. It does feel a bit "run down around the edges" and could use some sprucing up (stained carpet in the living area, windows that have lost their seal and are permanently clouded).
The internet was not working when we arrived and the management company responded promptly and came out within a couple of hours.

Thank you for your review, Jeanne! I'm delighted to hear you and your family had a wonderful stay at the Madras house. Thank you so much for your suggestions, I have made note to relay to the owners for future projects. As for the carpets, this unit is regularly carpet cleaned (including upholstery), so while there may be permanent staining, they are sanitized! I am glad our maintenance tech was able to get the internet back up and running quickly. You are welcome back anytime, let us know when you are ready to book your next getaway!

Location location location. Perfect for family w young ones and accessibility to beach. For the price, house is dated. Additionally attention to detail for this level of price is a bit missing. Trash was piled up outside from prior visitor thus making disposal difficult. Most importantly it’s a great location and that’s what we went for. Would recommend updates at this price point and likely it was available as last minute rental on a busy weekend in comparison to similar beach front properties at same price point

Hi John- Thanks for the feedback, as we will relay to the property owner. We hope you'll visit with us at the beach again soon.

Overall satisfied. The house is showing some wear. Painting the inside and attention to the outdoor furniture would make a huge difference. Great location and comfortable floor plan.

We stayed at Madras House last year and looked forward to a repeat of family fun time celebrating a grandchild's birthday. The location is very nice and views awesome. So with guests from different parts of the country it's a great house for coming together while providing privacy when desired. The kitchen is well equipped and comfortable for several persons to move around without getting in each other's way. Not sure if we'll book it again unless some issues are resolved as the house is need of a face lift (new carpeting, repair ceiling leak in Master bedroom, clean vents, etc. etc) Or the rental price should be lowered and these issues explained to potential clients. Overall, the check in -check out process was simple. Having a key code on front door simplified guests' comings and goings. Thanks.

Manager's Response

Hello, Colonel and Mrs. Waity, and thank you for leaving your review!
We are thrilled to have you and your family in Wrightsville Beach and staying at the Madras House year after year. Thank you, and we hope you had an excellent vacation!
Every year, during the winter season, we take special care and work in tandem with our property owners to keep their homes in the best shape possible. I am happy to report that this winter, our main focus in the Madras house addresses your concerns. (Good eye!)
The carpets are actually being cleaned and renewed this week, the issue above the master bedroom ceiling has been repaired and repainted, and many of the window treatments are being updated, among other touches. We know you agree that the Madras House is one of Wrightsville's premier vacation homes, and it is our pleasure to keep it in top form for years to come. Thank you for your continued business as well as your feedback, and we hope to see you again soon!

Cigarette butts on porch and stained carpet in master bedroom also no tea pot. Making tea in a saucepan lacks charm

Everything else was great and the management was very helpful.

Excellent home with premier location. The house is in some need of minor repairs (painting, carpet), but otherwise, beautiful.

Great location(for the over 55 crowd). Wonderful views, perhaps the best on the island from the upper deck. Comfortable, spacious with more than one area to read or keep in touch with work.

Loved the house. It fit our needs perfectly. The kids loved the pool table.
Only downside is that the internet and TV were out. We had to call Spectrum service, but because of the Thanksgiving holiday, it was 2 days before they could come. They discovered it was unplugged, presumably by the owner.

We are so glad you loved the house! The pool table and top floor are great for entertaining at this house. We are sorry there was an issue with the cable and internet and it required a call to spectrum. It looks like everything was resolved just after the holiday, still we are sorry you had to encounter this issue. We look forward to hosting you and your family again on your next vacation!

The house needs maintenance. The air conditioner started to leak setting off the house alarm. The ice maker did not work. There were no instructions about the use of the dish washer.

All good, have stayed there now 3 times. Just a few things. Last year the owner saw it was the second time we had rented the house (used to be with Intracoastal) and he volunteered to give us a $500 discount. You can let him know that I would be more than willing to accept that gift again if he wants to do so for July 2019. It would be nice if the owner hired a plantation shutter repair person to come in and fix all the single pieces that have broken loose, there are a good many throughout the whole house. At some point the den furniture could be replaced as well, adequate, but could be a little nicer and more comfortable. Also, you can tell the owner I was able to get the really nasty black grease stains out of the carpet in the master bedroom, no extra charge.

Hello Sam, We appreciate your feedback and have been working with a blind company. We are currently evaluating repairing or replacing the shutters and will get with the owner soon. We will pass along your other comments as well to the owner and we look forward to hosting you again next year!

We had several minor fixes diuring the stay - air/heat, refrigerator ice (not fixed as of when we left), window shitters. We did not an garage remote opener which for my handicap wife was very inconvenient. Needs some minor kitchen items - tea kettle, baking dishes, for example. Also got use more beach toys, blankets, umbrella, etc. I have rented similar priced houses that have these.

Location was great house and house was fine.
